I have been a patient of Dr Sharkeys for around 3 years now. I have had so many down times with my illness and Lisa has always listened to me and offered advice. Unlike other Doctors she treats me like a person and not a statistic which I feel is very important and helps build a professional trust. I am sometimes not an easy patient and have become very tearful and hostile at times however I know that she understands what I go through everyday. I have spent my whole life surrounded by one doctor or another and hand on heart I trust her with everything concerning my illness. Thank you Dr Lisa Sharkey for all the care that you have shown over the past years from myself and my family

I really like the fact she always treats me like a person not just a patient or a number. She always has time to listen to what I say and genuinely cares about how I feel. Unlike many doctors she is not arrogant and always talks to me and explains things. I feel she tries to find solutions when things aren’t going well and is honest with me. I do sometimes feel a bit alone when at home, so maybe a more straightforward and easy access to speak to her about issues. Also delegating the task of writing letters doesn’t always work, as sometimes this makes them less accurate. I feel documentation in general could possibly be improved, I feel this is an issue across the board, but is quite important for complex chronically ill patients.
